thats a complicated subject.
The mechanisms have changed over years but basically its a new religion infused into the core of persons of interest and used by them to control
subordinates as was done to the plebe before.
I think only the most naive among them actually believe it. The young and uninitiated perhaps. The blind? You never know how a young person will turn
The intelligence community is absolutely part of the over arching strategy of control and subversion. They do serve actual defence and their
respective mission statements. We think espionage is a recent invention of the last century but if we even just glaze over history we find that is
just not the case.
Nations need spies like leaders need their nations defence forces at their command. Intelligence services fall under a form of defence.
A king, especially a false king needs readily available forces to eliminate threats to his rule.
In that position everything is a possible threat. That lessens as time passes without your rule actually being directly challenged. The reason we see
increased heavy handed tactics from leadership unto its civilian population is because those threats have reared their head once again. There is a
real challenge to the power of our day and they have become complacent and all too comfortable in their percieved security and they know it. High
towers and all that.
These things arent usually taken lightly.
The internet. More dynamic and educated populations. Better access to alternative sources of wealth and power not in line with the path of access
established by the power elite. New resources, populations, areas of influence, evolving philosophies
..These things are threats to the
centralized rule of our day. In short everything. Paranoia is actually well justified. Its still as useless though.
The sad reality for them is that there is no solution. They were given kingship, such was their destiny, everlasting dominion is not their destiny.
We live in a world where a boy can develop a game changing technology or source of power and wealth in his garage and topple hundreds of years of near
pristine succession of power in a single night.
You have too many rogue elements to control. Too many factors. Your only hope then is to stagnate actual progress and proceed with a fevered pitch to
demoralizing, disempowering, and culturally shattering the people you wish to rule.
Its a death spiral. I assure you. We should wait it out and not worry too much about dream technologies making their continued dominion possible in
spite of fate. As they develop their abilities to cope other abilities will be created to oppose those. All we must do is simply prepare ourselves to
be risen up to power once again.
It is the nature of things. Those who resist find oblivion. Those who adapt find peace. They could withdraw and continue: forgiven and unnoticed.
Those they usurped did. They seem to find themselves ingrown with their crowns though and think removing them would be like ripping flesh from their
I would recommend to them a rediscovery of purpose. All things considered the entire human race is transitioning into a new era. A return to the
golden ages of old? Who knows. A new era none the less. They too are "human" I suppose. If they were willing to try they could make it. Trying to
usurp that change as is their custom will not end well for them. There is no substitute or variation from the true form of that change that will be
tolerated. Its the very nature of the change which if they were to understand they would see for themselves as self evident.
It shows a lack of understanding as to the nature of the change. No need to get too philosophical about it to grasp it. Perhaps this will sound
familiar to them.
A people suffering long will be outraged once conditions improve and they realize how much they were actually suffering. Things are unalterably better
I would like to slip out from behind the curtain unnoticed so that my blood can live for another day....but thats me.
